Don your heels for black tie ball

Cannock | Staffordshire entertainment | Published:

A breast cancer black tie charity ball with more than 130 guests will take place this month.

With invitations for the Breast Cancer Charity Ball she is organising, Penny Starkey, of Cannock

The event on October 12 at 7pm will raise money for Breast Cancer UK.

It will be hosted at the Premier Suite on Danilo Road in Cannock and will include a three-course meal, a big raffle and entertainment.

Penny Starkey, age 20, decided to organise the event encouraged by her grandmother’s struggle with breast cancer. Having recently received great news, Ms Starkey said on her Facebook page: "Many of you will know my Nan had Breast Cancer in 2018. With the help and care from our amazing NHS doctors and nurses my Nan can finally say she has kicked cancer's ass. Unfortunately this isn’t always the outcome for everybody."

Penny added that the event will not only be a celebration of her grandma’s victory, but also a great opportunity to contribute with a great cause, not to mention “a good excuse to buy a new pair of shoes and a new dress.”

More info can be found on the event’s Facebook page.

Anyone who would like to buy a ticket for £35 or donate to the cause, call 07808 811917 or email
